Obituary for James Roy Welfel

James Roy Welfel
James Roy Welfel, 67, of Roseland, passed away November 24, 2017 at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston after battling an aggressive form of leukemia.


Jim did not wish to have a funeral or wake, so the family will have visiting hours at the house at 3 Cobb Terrace in Roseland on Thursday, November 30 from 3PM to 7PM.

Born in Racine, Wisconsin on May 14, 1950, Jim moved to New Jersey to teach in 1973 after graduating college in Wisconsin. He married his best friend and the love of his life, Linda Welfel, on April 15,1977. He cherished and loved Linda with every fiber of his being. Jim truly did it all—he was a teacher, small business owner, salesman, home renovation project manager, and the guy everyone would call to fix or renovate their house. Jim was an incredible father to his and Linda''s two children, Scott and Kristen and son-in-law Chris, loving grandfather to his grandson Ian, and his love and legacy will endure through them. Jim''s spirit and memory will live on through his sister Cheryl, brothers Tom and Jon, step-mother Karen, step-brother Gary, and his amazing friends with whom he shared love, laughter, and perhaps a few beers.
